Hobbiton Movie Set in Matamata, North Island of New Zealand

Share/Bookmark

New Zealand has become synonymous with the Middle-earth of JRR Tolkien’s famous books since the release of the blockbuster Lord of the Rings film trilogy, directed by New Zealander Sir Peter Jackson. On the most picturesque private farmland you can visit the Hobbiton Movie Set from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies in a fascinating two-hour guided tour. Due to copyright, all the intricately constructed movie sets around the country were dismantled after filming, but Hobbiton’s owners negotiated to keep their hobbit holes, which have been completely rebuilt for the filming of The Hobbit.

How to Move House in New Zealand

Share/Bookmark

This is how you move house in New Zealand. The tractor on the right is ploughing a track/exit for the truck to manoeuvre the house onto the road for the journey up State Highway 45. The cost of moving the house will depend mainly on the time it takes, which depends in turn on the route to be travelled, the size of the house and the degree of difficulty. It can range from a few thousand dollars to move a single-piece house, with the price increasing for the number of pieces, location and difficulty.
